NKorea blames US, SKorea for cyberattacks, but experts say investigations can take months
SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea says South Korea and the U.S. are behind a temporary Internet shut down this week. But an expert says it’s too early to determine what happened.
The official Korean Central News Agency provided few details in its claim Friday of an attack.
South Korea denies the allegation. The U.S. military declined to comment. A security expert says cyberattack investigations can take months, and that individual hackers are more likely to blame than governments in this case.
Only a small number of approved North Koreans can surf the World Wide Web.
Pyongyang also criticizes U.S.-South Korean military drills and new UN sanctions.
